Kids Reading Across Rhode Island

Kids Reading Across Rhode Island is back!  The kick-off celebration will be held on Saturday, June 1st from 1:00pm - 4:00pm at the Rhode Island State House in Providence.  The 2013 book is... Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai!  M. Lai will give a presentation and sign copies of the book. Crafts and activities will be available from Rhode Island libraries.  In addition a youth dance group from Worcester, MA will perform two Vietnamese dances.  Each family in attendance will receive a free copy of the book.  This event is for kids in grades 3 – 6.


Through a series of poems, a young girl chronicles the life-changing year of 1975, when she, her mother, and her brothers leave Vietnam and resettle in Alabama.
